    Why do you have TWO rabid right-wing conservative Republicans every single day, and ONE often neutral person, or a comedian, or, rarely, ONE Democrat??? I used to watch Starting Point each morning while I worked out, but I usually can't stand to listen to them (and you) attack Democrats any way they can think of every morning. PLEASE provide BALANCE by occasionally having TWO Democrats and only one rabid conservative!!!!!!!
